Scale Out with Cluster Sharding

Reading Time: 3 minutes If your actors are distributed across several nodes in the cluster, Cluster Sharding allows you to interact with them without worrying about their physical location and using only their logical identifier. Even if an actor re-locates to a new node, Akka will take care of locating it for you. You just need to send a message to it as if it is located on your local node.
